The Science and Technology Directorate at the Department of Homeland Security aims to facilitate technology transfer from government to the commercial market with the release of new cybersecurity technologies in December, FCW reported Wednesday.
Mark Rockwell writes that DHS wants to help build up cyber offerings for federal agencies and their partners in the private sector, as well as to develop mature technologies through the Transition to Practice program.
“Cybersecurity is not a private or a government problem. It’s a joint problem,” Mike Pozmantier, program manager for S&T TTP operations, told the publication.
DHS will showcase the new cyber technologies on Dec. 16 as part of efforts to expose government-developed tools to greater potential development and improvements in the commercial market, the report said.
Pozmantier said that agencies usually award commercial developers license to further work on the technologies and expand their applications.
